GOOD FOOD IN TUBAC

We (wife and myself) had a late lunch at Tubac Jack's and it was very tasty and enjoyable. Tubac has got to be one of the largest tourist traps in the West but, it's fun to just wonder around it's three (3) main streets and look at all the art, junk and restaurants. Jack's was recommended to us... read more

I met friends for lunch today. Very friendly greeters and the waitress was super good. She had good timing and a wonderful western accent. Food fast and tasty. Take some time and read all the historical information on the walls.

We went here so many times during our trip, that our super nice waitress, Nancy, knew us by name... They're not kidding when they say "Masterful Margaritas"..Also nice cold beers. Chips & Guacamole were great, so was the Pulled pork sandwich w/slaw, and the killer cheeseburgers...All your fav southwest bar food is there. We sat out at an umbrella table... More

Fun bar in downtown Tubac. Sat at the bar and enjoyed a few cold beers and great live entertainment. The jalapeño poppers were a perfect complement.

Tubac Jack's is basically a Tex-Mex barbecue joint catering to the tourist trade. However, the chef shows some imagination. My two friends sampled some of the standard Tex-Mex/barbecue fare (ribs and buritos) and reported that they were okay but certainly not above average. My pork/green chili stew was a decided cut above average, however. The green chilies were flavorful but... More

Stopped here for a quick meal after working in Nogales MX. This is not a fancy place but the food and service is good. I love their classic dish - green chilly stew. I also tried the home made potato chips and they were nice. I'll back again soon.

Tubac Jack's is located in the heart of Tubac’s eclectic art district, and offers a very savory, fire-grilled burger! It’s topped with lettuce, tomato and red onion and served with ‘Home on the Range’ steak fries and a pickle spear. I opted to have Bacon, Swiss & Avocado Burger ($ 10.5) served up as a “Little Jack for $2 less!”... More

Being that Tubac Jacks is a bar/restaurant in a touristy town, I had no expectations. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The drinks were made well and the food exceeded expectations. Highly recommend. We live close by in Rio Rico so it's a "local" destination. We would definitely eat there again. Shout out to our server Nancy. Terrific!!

We were seated promptly, and service was very good throughout our visit. I had a mushroom and Swiss burger (very good), and my husband had fish tacos (also very good). My only criticism is that 2 of the things we ordered (a special wine and a dessert that's on the menu) weren't available. This may have been due to a... More

Nice margaritas, pork dishes, green chili stew, nachos and anything avocado. When my husband's shirt was the recipient of some errant bbq sauce, mgmt offered a Tubac Jack t-shirt - classy touch.
